Monsanto Caribe LLC is part of the Puerto Rico seed breeding industry. Monsanto has operated in Puerto Rico since 1996, when it acquired Asgrow Seeds. Asgrow had been operating in Puerto Rico since 1983. Monsanto’s operations on the Island consist of agricultural biotechnology and breeding research to develop the best soybeans, cotton, corn and sorghum seeds for farmers by selecting seeds with superior genetics. The seeds produced here are then sent to other Monsanto sites for additional testing and for large-scale seed production.
